The easiest route is to take I-95 past NYC, then go north on I-91. That's a bit longer than the I-87 route up thru NY state (like an hour more), but it's super easy.
Take the tappan see to 87 to albany. Get directions to bennington and the 7 N to manchester. If no one fills in the blanks, I will do so when get home as don't want to give bad info. very easy .
Agree w/ Neslaw above, the Tappan Zee bridge route is the most direct. If memory serves, is I-95 to I-87, there's a sign for the Tappan Zee Br.
correction to my post. take NJT to either garden state or 287 (just about the same time but GS is a toll road) near Newark to I- 87 N, YOU DO NOT GO over the Tappan Zee, you follow the directions to Albany, then 787 to Troy to Rt 7 all the way to Bennington where you pick up Vt rt 7 north for 30 minutes to Manchester. I have always found this to be less traffic than going thru Ct.
Agree with neslaw
